If any part of you suspects a commenter is trying to interfere with your chosen work, I believe it is self-destructive to give them airtime.
Your Anon commenter is a TROLL, they are people who basically google a topic, find blogs and start trouble.
“We” to suggest that the commenter is progressive, when they are not.
